what about shifting 5-6 k ? im thinking of also getting an anderson cam any opinions about them ?
shift point depends on the car, for the cam you cant go too big with those heads, you need to gear it first also. if your mechanicly inclined you can save a lot of money installing them yourself, more than enough $$ to buy a cam.

f is about as big as i would recommend using stock valvesprings and stock pistons....BUT with that said, dont buy a ford racing cam.
there are MUCH better cams available for the same money. just a personal preference.

look into the TFS-stage 1. 499/510 lift, split duration, IMO its a pretty decent cam for going in a stock motor. others will have their own opinions

Get a custom cam...

GT40s, bolt ons, cam, 4.10s and some abusive driving netted my brother an 11.86 @ 114. I think you wanting to go 12s shouldnt be an issue!
